DART to Arts & Science


Through Jan. 29 Modern Spanish Art from the Asociación Colección Arte Contemporáneo at the Meadows Museum presents the most comprehensive survey of Spanish modern art to be shown in the United States in 50 years. The exhibition, which features more than 90 works of art dated from 1915-1960 by approximately 50 artists, is drawn predominantly from the Asociación Colección Arte Contemporáneo (ACAC),one of the most significant repositories of Spanish modern art in the world, with select masterpieces from the renowned collection of the Meadows Museum. The collaboration and exhibition mark the first time many of these works will travel to the U.S., and the first opportunity for American audiences to experience the exceptional breadth and depth of the ACAC's modern art collection. The exhibition is at the Meadows Museum, 5900 Bishop Boulevard on the SMU campus. Information: www.meadowsmuseumdallas.org.

Through Mar. 19 Spanning the 12th to early 16th centuries, Art and Nature in the Middle Ages explores the diverse modes of expression and variety of representations of nature in European medieval art, whether plant or animal, sacred or profane, real or imagined, highlighting the continuities and changes. The exhibition, featuring work from the Musée de Cluny, musée national du Moyen Âge, Paris, and on view exclusively at the DMA in the United States, presents more than 100 extraordinary objects, rarely before shown in the United States, that reflect the wide range of styles, techniques, and iconography that flourished during this period.

Fierce Loyalty: A Samurai Complete is at Crow Collection of Asian Art. This permanent exhibition devoted to the art and culture of the Japanese samurai showcases one of the Crow Collection's most recent and spectacular acquisitions - a complete set of samurai armor, one of the finest examples of its kind anywhere in the world. The suit of armor was originally created for Abe Masayoshi (1700–1769), the daimyo (a powerful landholding ruler) of Bingo province from 1715 until his death. In addition to components crafted by the best metalsmiths of the day, the armor includes a hoshi kabuto, or traditional Japanese helmet, made by the renowned armorer Neo Masanobu.
